Not a Care in the World

The weekend is almost upon us! It’s been a short week because of a public holiday in the UK and also been super busy in both lives so it’s literally flown by. It literally just feels like yesterday I was starting my week off when actually it was almost 2 weeks ago. Why does time…

Magic Tea Time Bliss

I need a good angel. You know the ones that sit on your shoulder and tell you when to behave and shout down the bad devil on the other shoulder egging on you on to do the stupidest things? See the devil, or bad angel, had no competition at the moment it seems. The bad…

It’s not just a place…it’s home

I think it’s possible I’ve rezzed, partially decorated and de rezzed upwards of 20 different houses in the last few months. That is about to change. The main issue was that I was using houses on a platform on my sim TaKe Heart which meant I had to be frugal with prims and I’m not…

Rest and Be Thankful

One man’s rest is another man’s work. We all find different ways to relax and chill out and what works for one isn’t always what is going to work for another. I have a friend that is constantly telling me I need to take more breaks, chill out and enjoy SL. What he doesn’t get…

If You Could Read Me Like a Book

I was wondering today what the cover of the book of my life would look like. They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover but as someone who spent a few years working in book publishing sales and marketing I know just how important the cover of a book is to grabbing the…

My Funny Valentine

How young are we when we become aware of love? I was putting together this Cheeky Pea set on my sim, TaKe Heart while chatting to a friend when my daughter and her boyfriend came to visit in real life. (I say visit, technically she lives with at home but you wouldn’t know it). Her…

It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like….

The radio at work is starting to ramp up the number of Christmas songs it plays per day. When I was growing up, and probably on through my 20’s, ┬áthe rush to be Christmas number 1 in the UK was huge news. There would be betting odds with all the bookies giving odds on whether…

The Pumpkin Patch is back

I sometimes think the song ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ should really be about Autumn rather than Christmas. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy Christmas AT Christmas I just hate all the build up to it and the stress. Once the day is here I enjoy it, even if it’s a…

…..Do It Better

Well the sign behind me in this picture actually say Hippies do it better but I was thinking it could say a lot of different….it reminded me of a song I used to play quite often when I dj’d called Brunettes Do It Better…of course I only played it when I was wearing brunette hair….

The Chill Zone

I’ve had a rather lovely weekend in SL so far though I’ve been keeping a keen eye (aka as a second screen) on the Olympics. I’m totally in awe of the commitment that the athletes show to their sport. The hours upon hours that they put into training and getting to optimum fitness and shape…

Don’t Just Pay Lip Service to Second Life Experiences

Our Second Lives would be very dull if all we did was shop and this is coming from someone who can shop like a pro! As part of a team of experience creators I am of course passionate about all those other elements that bring joy to our second lives too. Whether that be a…

Out of This Wood Do Not Desire To Go

I’ve been trying to start this blog post for almost an hour but every time I look at this picture I hear Don Mclean’s song lyrics from Vincent in my head “Starry, starry night Paint your palette blue and gray’ and I get somewhat distracted from what I originally wanted to talk about. So I’ve…
